i29 interior architects designed a minimalist, open space concept residence in Singel, Amsterdam. Home 06 was designed as one large open space, where several functions have been placed into freestanding volumes. The feature of the residence is a large vertical garden that contrasts with the minimalist white interior.
The kitchen and wardrobe have been placed near the entrance, and combined into one single volume. The bathroom and bedroom have been hidden into a separate volume placed at the back of the house. From the open living area, eyes are drawn towards the vertical garden, and the entrance stairs to the roof terrace.
The view on the green wall holds a promise in itself which will be redeemed once you enter the bed/bathroom.
Integration of nature is an important aspect of traditional culture in Japan, the homeland of the client. The integrated in-house vertical garden is an example of this, creating an interior oasis alongside the simplicity and minimalist details.
